beer bacon potato soup aka man soup


i would say this soup is a once a year type indulgence- if you are on a diet, turn away now. that is how powerful this soup is, even reading the ingredients will make a dieter faint. i made this after reading "the fundamental techniques of classic cuisine", by the french culinary institute. i went into the grocery story with a very limited knowledge of the fundmantels and a strong desire to make a potato soup that would clog my aerteries but good! i think i found it! please consider the constitution of people you serve this to! it is not to be fed to the weak. with great soup comes great responsibility. this is not a quick soup or one of the full day-long beauties. it is in-between but it is just what you want when you feel a need to 'splurge.' i reserve the use of this soup for super bowl sundays. and yes, the pun is defintely intended.

  1. Bake the 4 potatoes
  2. To do this
  3. Scrub clean
  4. Coat lightly with oil and salt them
  5. Preheat oven to 400 and bake for 45 minutes
  6. Adjust cooking time to make sure they pierce easily with a fork
  7. As the potatoes cook
  8. Chop onion and celery and start the bacon
  9. Bacon needs to be cut into 1" pieces and cook in a heavy bottom soup pot
  10. Cook on medium heat and take it out when done
  11. Once bacon is done
  12. Take out with slotted spoon and set on a plate with paper towel underneath and on top to absorb grease
  13. I must
  14. In the grease of the bacon
  15. Put in the chopped onion and celery
  16. Sautee until translucent
  17. About 5 minutes
  18. Add the 4 t butter and stir until it melts
  19. Yes
  20. At first this seems like a lot of grease !
  21. Sprinkle the flour onto the onion / celery mix
  22. Add at least 1 / 2 cup
  23. Up to one full cup
  24. Stirring continuously
  25. This makes a paste
  26. You are now basically making a roux with the vegetables- called singering if you want to throw french cuisine words around !
  27. Stir this until all of the flour and fats are combined smoothly
  28. "keep stirring it another 5 minutes until it becomes a blonde roux"
  29. Slowly at first add the chicken broth
  30. Continue to add broth to keep the now paste-like roux softened
  31. Add more and more at a time to get the roux into a creamy texture
  32. It should continue to accept more liquid
  33. After about half the broth has been added you can just dump in the rest
  34. However use common sense here
  35. Keep stirring
  36. You never want to let it get too watery
  37. Once all the broth has been added
  38. Bring in the two 12 oz bottles of beer
  39. Please use a local microbrwery
  40. "i use winter ale"
  41. Add this a little at a time and continue to stir
  42. Your loving stirring is what is going to make this an awesome soup
  43. I think i already said this
  44. But this soup is to be used for good only
  45. If you are planning on a nefarious use of the soup then go ahead and throw all of the ingredients in at once
  46. You will now
